Welcome to Mims Elementary, Home of the Mighty Mustangs and Mustangville! This school year finds us in unprecedented territory once again as we continue to face pandemic issues. We are currently scheduled to start in-person instruction on Monday, August 16, 2021. We want to reassure you that we are taking extreme precautionary measures to secure the safety of our students and staff. Our custodial team will gain one more member in an effort to continue to disinfect thoroughly throughout the day. We have individual student dividers which will be placed strategically to avoid student contact. We have new motion water fountains, which include bottle water placement. We will continue to offer breakfast in the classroom and will now include lunch in the classroom. Social distancing is a priority and will be enforced as much as physically possible. We encourage all of our students to wear face masks. We have face masks available on campus. Unfortunately, parents will not be permitted on campus until further notice. Staff will be available electronically during non-instructional time to address concerns. Your peace of mind is important to us.
Rest assured that our team is working diligently to continue to deliver instruction that is relevant and rigorous. We will continue to communicate high expectations for all parties involved. We will receive additional instructional and counseling personnel for the next three years to assist us with gaps and issues which may have surfaced due to pandemic.
We will need your support more than ever to continue to thrive as we have since our inception. At Mims, we embrace what comes our way and we make it work. We cannot predict what the rest of the school year will look like, but what we are ready to make changes as needed in an effort to meet the needs of our students.
We have missed our students tremendously and look forward to service them keeping in mind their safety first. We miss our parents as well. We can't wait to reunite our Mims Family once again!
